Mommy Matters Monday: Creating Family Traditions

Yesterday, my little family and I had the chance to spend the day in the mountains of NC. We had a small picnic, hiked, and explored the beauty at Linville Falls. The highlight for us was going back to the spot where Lee asked me to marry him over 3 years ago!

I can hardly believe that the past 3 years have flown by so fast. I guess time does that when you’re having fun! 🙂 
Lee & I went back to our engagement spot (a small but gorgeous overhang off the main trail) last year when I was extremely pregnant to rereminisce, pray, and thank the Lord for his blessings. It was a hundred times better having Aymen Grace with us this year. Even tthough she doesn’t understand where we were or why, it was meaningful for us to have her there as we remembered how far we had come since our last hike there. We were able to thank God for our little angel and to pray with her for His guidance in the year to come.
Here are some pictures from our hike:

I think we’ve created a new family tradition! 
So tell me, what are some of your family’s traditions? 
Are they mostly holiday related? 
Anything special you & your spouse share with your kids that has to do with your relationship or marriage?
